PYLON converts the values for this target to lowercase before they reach the filtering engine. This target is case sensitive so make sure you supply your arguments in lowercase in:

  • query filters
  • interaction filters if you are using the cs modifier

See also: fb.author.type.

Examples

  1. Filter for comments, reshares, or likes for stories that mention coffee from Facebook users, excluding page-created content:

    fb.parent.author.type == "user" and fb.parent.content contains "coffee"

  2. Filter for comments on stories that mention coffee from Facebook users, excluding page-created content:

    fb.parent.author.type == "user" 
    and fb.parent.content contains "coffee" and fb.type == "comment"

Notes

In the UI, the output is a pie or bar chart with up to 2 elements.
